I did in the 60's
Not sure if it is the best in Colorado, but not too far outside of Denver, I had good times on the South Platte River near Deckers. Here is a good site for information on this particular area http://www.southplatteoutfitters.com/
Actually I think there are not very many bad locations
for trout fishing in Colorado, I was just easy for me to get to Leadville from Colorado Springs.
Wow, that is a crazy question to be asking. I live in CO. Yes there is pretty good trout fishing pretty much anywhere near or in the mountains, but there are certain areas that are much better. Colorado is home to miles and miles of gold medal trout water. 160 something miles I believe. They include. Parts of the Animas, Blue, Colorado, Frying pan, Gunnison, North Platte, South Platte, Rio Grande, and roaring fork rivers. Also part of Gore creek, as well as North Delaney lake and Spinney Mountain Reservoir. What one is best depends on what species you are after. There are also TONS of places all over the mountains to catch them. To even begin to give you much of an answer you would have to tell me what part of the state, and what species for starters.
i like the black canyon and the frying pan.JMO.
jamesti, I heard amazing things about the frying pan, just never got around to fishing it before we left.
head over to carbondale. good access there. and great fishing, both in size and numbers!
I fished the Roaring Fork and it was terrific, but i heard many rave about the Frying Pan.
Check this out: http://www.coloradofishing.net/, all the locations you need, with a very detailed description. Hope it helps. Andrea from http://www.plussizecocktaildressessite.com
